Fife Young Carers (FYC) was established in 1998 and has worked at becoming an integral part of the delivery of support for young carers up to the age of 25 across Fife.

FYC offers a wide range of support. The support is person-centred and tailored for everyone based on a menu of support options. The organisation supports all young carers regardless of background, situation, or the client group of the cared-for person. We currently support 893 Young Carers living within Fife with a further 65 awaiting an assessment to service.

To celebrate FYC turning 25 they have been hosting several events, with the final one being ‘The Ball’ held at KDM Group East End Park on Thursday 14th March.

The purpose of this is to bring Young Carers aged 14-25 together to celebrate how amazing they are and to provide valuable respite from their caring role.

Many Young Carers miss out on social events, such as school formals / proms, friend’s birthday parties etc, due to their challenging caring role, financial constraints which prevent them attending, or low self-esteem. ‘The Ball’ will have the feel of a school prom, providing Young Carers with a 3-course meal, party tunes, and photo booth to enjoy throughout the night.

FYC staff will be on hand throughout the evening to provide reassurance and support to the Young Carers who attend. Staff will also work with the Young Carers to ensure there is support at home to allow them to have a much-earned break from their caring role. This whole event will be provided at no cost to the Young Carers who attend.
